Imagine being able to not just touch, but to feel, touchscreens.
It’s possible today, and the TPad Tablet Project puts this technology into your hands. We are a community of researchers, interaction designers, and enthusiasts who are very excited about the potential to drastically improve the way in which we interact with computers and mobile devices.
Our first release, the TPad Fire, is a variable friction surface combined with an Amazon Kindle Fire™ tablet. View the full instructions on how to build one for research and non-commercial use. Download software from our Github account and share with others improvements you’ve made in the software and hardware though the forum.
If you’re interested in other ways to get involved, please contact us directly. Otherwise, sign up to receive updates on the TPad Tablet Project. We’ll only email you if we have important news.
